Mindfulness: it is not just a buzzword or a trend to be dabbled in. It is something that we as adults should be aiming to have a skill, and pass down to our children too. Before we look at how we can instill mindfulness in our children (and whole family), let’s look at what mindfulness is.

“a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.”

First things first:

In order to teach something like mindfulness, we need to have our practices in place. How do you do it? Do you meditate? Do you have an inner monologue of sayings that help you stay in that space? Whatever it is, you have to be doing it too. If not, there is no better time to start. Set a goal to begin meditating for at least 3 minutes a day – you can use an app to help you if you want, then up your time when you get more and more comfortable with it.

Think about why you are doing this? If you are finding that you are setting expectations, then perhaps you need to reconsider. Anything other than for your child to learn to process thoughts and feelings with a sense of confidence then stop.


As we age, we become much wiser, more confident, and inevitably a lot more experienced, but there is another aspect of aging no woman on this planet loves. This aspect involves wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and other similar nerve-racking issues, but you don’t have to worry at all because there are ways to deal with them successfully. Here are ten amazing cosmetic treatments every 30-something woman should consider, so check them out and find (at least) one just for yourself!
Camping is one of the best experiences any adventure-loving person could ever have. And the fact that it offers a temporary escape from the hustles and bustles of ordinary life makes it a favorite activity for just about anybody. But amidst all the thrill and magic it offers, camping has its pitfalls too and depending on the nature and severity of some, you could end up in a life-threatening situation. A case in point is if you were to be attacked by a savage venomous snake in the dead of the night but then you realize you are out of the gas lighter.

Fighting a snake in darkness could pass as one of a camper’s worst nightmares. In order to avert such unpleasant situations, every camper must see to it that they carry with them some great portable camping gadgets that do not only ensure their safety but also add much luxury and comfort to their camping. The following are some of these.

Bluetooth Speaker – Sometimes the silence of the wilderness may get so loud that it breeds boredom and loneliness. At such times, a taste of your favorite music could help banish the loneliness and invigorate your spirits. A Bluetooth speaker is especially preferred in such situations. By virtue of its wireless connectivity, you could use the speaker to play your favorite music as you attend to some chores around the campsite. One Bluetooth speaker we would mention here is the UE MEGABOOM. Apart from offering a 360-degrees sound that features deep bass, this speaker is powerful enough to support a range of 100 feet. Even better, it has a powerful battery that can serve you for about 20-hours before you can think of recharging it.
